This beach has lots of parking, clean bathrooms, outside showers, a sandy swimming area where the waves are non threatening to little children near the jetty and easy swimming for anyone. The waves peal off the point and gentle roll in during this time of year for easy long board riding all the way to the shore. There are people... More

We had a great time. Very clean park and beach. Lots of great fun watching the surfers. We were out on a day when there were big winds so we got to see some pretty amazing surfing. Just go to this park (no fee to get in) and skip all of the tourist trap shops and restaurants as you drive... More

There are many beaches in Haleiwa. This one has a lot to offer all at one place. In the summer the water is nice and calm. In winter this place is popular with the surfers. Lots of beach to kick back and watch the action or just soak up the sun. There's a shower and more parking than Waimea. There's... More

This is a perfect area to stop if you want to rent equipment. Shops and town really close by with lots of lessons available. Sometimes turtles can be seen on the beaches here. There is also a Big parking lot.

Was touring around the island and this seemed a natural place to stop. Would recommend it as a good place from which to see great wave and surfer action. Very Good

Just as I remembered from 40 years ago, this beach is not great for swimming. there is a lot of debris on sand and in the water. its too bad but maybe its proximity to the yacht harbor makes it inevitable.

Haleiwa town is a throwback to old Hawaii, a little main street with lots of shops, galleries, and eateries to choose from. It is adjacent to the beach park and a flat easy walk. Do be sure to try a shave ice, a local treat, especially if you put a scoop of ice cream and black beans in the bottom.... More

If your looking for a beautiful beach location that's off the beaten path? Then Haleiwa Beach Park is where you want to go. It's big, clean, roomy and not over run with people. It's protected by a natural reef, so the water is always calm. Perfect for paddle boarding and beginner wind surfing.
